Maryland Metrics: Fluro Rod Ends for Motorsport


  Applications Motorsport

The Motor Sport application has its own demand on product and technique. The required task is to create
a product which combines high performance with an appealing sporty design. Animated through customers
and in close contact with technicians and university development teams FLURO developed this MS series.
For the below mentioned applications the technical geometric design and connected to it the performance
of the bearing becomes imminent importance. A special emphasis has to be laid on the bearing’s 
composition of inner ring, insert, mating surface and housing.

A classic application for Rod Ends is the suspension system. Related to it are different load problems such as vibrations and shocks under radial or axial loads. This dynamic stress demands a technically high quality bearing.
Depending on the race course and the driving style the driver demands from the vehicle, different loads can occur on the steering system.

Racing vehicles require in addition a sporty design and appearance. The nickel plated housing with a high polish finish offer a professional racing look and are easy to clean from dirt and grease.


For motor circles Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings are used as stabilizers, for rod linkages and steering devices.
